The Artwork

Character is Beauty’ is the English interpretation of a popular (and one of my favourite) Yoruba proverbs- Iwa Lewa.  The proverb encourages us to consider that beyond the superficial, beyond appearance, and beyond the facades. Who you are and what you do is your real beauty.⁣

⁣Proverbs have always provided a powerful means of communicating knowledge, experience, beliefs, and concepts.  With the Yoruba people and culture growing worldwide, these proverbs, and others of African origin, are gifts to the world.⁣
